Margo: Happy Halloween! Have fun, be safe. There you go. Whoo! How cute.

Paul: Hey, is this about Steinbeck?

Margo: Yeah, trick or treat, boo.

Paul: Margo, I don't have time for games.

Margo: No, neither do I. Sit down. Now, I understand that you have a tape of Jessica and Marshall Travers doing what people --

Paul: No, that is not true.

Margo: -- Have been doing since time began. And I understand that you want to use this tape as leverage to get at Steinbeck.

Paul: Who told you?

Margo: You do understand that I could have you arrested for extortion?

Paul: Is this why you brought me in here?

Margo: No.

Paul: Okay, then fine, whatever it is, will have to wait. 'Cause Marshall's being inducted this morning and I gotta be there.

Margo: Whoa, hold on. What's this?

Paul: It's my cell phone. What?

Margo: Show it to me. I realize that you'll do anything you can to get at Steinbeck, but carrying one of these around, you're the one who's gonna get hurt, Paul.

Marshall: You're early.

Jessica: I catch a lot of worms that way.

Marshall: Looking forward to private life?

Jessica: I was. But once Bonnie and Ben see that tape of us in bed together, my private life will be in ruins. Not unlike my public life, thanks to you.

Marshall: What makes you so certain they'll see the tape?

Jessica: Bonnie found out that it has something to do with me, and she's determined to find out what it is. I'll sit somewhere else.

Marshall: Wait. I want to see you. Alone. After my swearing-in.

Jessica: You are persistent, I'll give you that. But as many times as you ask, that's how many times I'll turn you down.

Marshall: Obviously, we can't talk now. But I give you my word, you will not be hurt by that tape.

Jessica: How do you know that?

Marshall: Paul Ryan will be handled. That's all I can say.

Events manager: Mrs. McKinnon, I hope you -- I hope you're here with some good news.

Molly: Concerning?

Events manager: Well, when I arrived here this morning, there was a note from Detective Snyder saying the wedding had been canceled.

Molly: That was from last night.

Events manager: Oh, my God, it's true? I've got 75 salmon fillets about to arrive any minute.

Molly: Don't give up on them yet, okay? With Detective Snyder and Ms. Tenney, things often change very quickly.

Henry: Well, the dame and I were a perfect match. She had honey in her hair and vodka in her veins. I was the gumshoe who never quits.

Rosanna: What are you doing?

Henry: I'm sorry. I get a little giddy when a case goes so well.

Rosanna: What did you find out?

Henry: Well, your sister, Carly Tenney, she spent last evening at her offices at the Monte Carlo. You wouldn't call it working, but she definitely worked up a sweat.

Rosanna: What are you saying? That she -- she and Craig -- on the night before her wedding?

Henry: Yeah, could be.

Carly: Jack, can you shut off the lights? Oh, I have such a headache. Jack? Are you okay?

Carly: Oh, my God. Do you know what we've done?

Mike: Yeah, I think we fell asleep.

Carly: No, no, that's not what I meant. This -- this is supposed to be my wedding day. Do you know what that means?

Mike: I think so, yeah.

Carly: It means that I can't even -- I can't even get to the "I dos" before I -- oh, my God. How could I do this? How could I cheat on Jack? I love Jack. I'm insane. I must be completely insane.

Mike: Okay, all right, just calm down for a second, all right? Look, now, as I remember, things kind of changed for us last night. I broke up with Molly and --

Carly: Jack called off the wedding.

Mike: Yeah. And you were pretty devastated.

Carly: Yeah. But still --

Mike: I know.

Carly: I wanna kill myself.

Mike: Look, we were hurting last night. And we had a lot of champagne.

Carly: Do you think that's an excuse? You're dating my best friend, my cousin. My best friend in the whole world.

Mike: Okay. We reached out -- we needed comfort. We're old friends.

Carly: You know something? You're right.

Mike: Yeah.

Carly: There's absolutely nothing behind it. We're just two lonely lost people, trying to block out the pain.

Mike: Yeah. That's the whole story right there, all right? But I gotta tell you, um -- I don't know. You and I still have this -- I don't really know what to call it.

Carly: Do we?

Jack: Carly, are you in there? Carly, if you're there, open up. I need to see you right away.

Carly: Jack can't find us like this. Mike, what are we going to do?

Mike: Is there a back entrance? I can sneak out of this place or what.

Carly: No. You're gonna have to hide.

Jack: Carly, open up!

Carly: All right, stay back here. And don't -- don't even breathe. You understand me?

Mike: Okay.

Carly: I'm coming, Jack! Just a minute!

[Knock on door]

Jack: Honey, I've got to talk to you.

Carly: Coming.

Jack: Hey.

Carly: Hi.

Jack: Is everything all right?

Carly: Yeah.

Jack: What took so long?

Carly: I was sleeping. I'm fine.

Jack: Did you spend all night here?

Carly: Well, I knew that you probably didn't want to see me at home. And Parker's with John, so I just -- I crashed here. Well, I was just -- gonna go now. We have a lot of phone calls to make. I thought we could split the list.

Jack: No, no, you know, maybe -- maybe we don't have to do that. I -- I spent most of last night thinking about what I said to you and how I acted when I found you with Craig. And Carly, I was wrong.

Carly: What did you say?

Jack: I hurt you, Carly, for no reason. And I'd only hope that somehow, we can work our way back.

Carly: I'm not sure I understand.

Jack: Honey, I'll get down on my knees and I'll propose to you again, if that's what it takes. I want you to marry me, Carly, as much as I ever did.

Rosanna: Look, I'm not in the mood for riddles, Henry. I want you to tell me exactly what you saw Carly do, and with whom.

Henry: I saw clothes, Rosanna, lots of clothes. All over the office floor.

Rosanna: Very classy.

Henry: Mm-hmm.

Rosanna: What else?

Henry: Well, she and her companion were -- very animated. There's lots of giggling, there was lots of -- gasping for air. That sort of thing. It'll all be in my report.

Rosanna: It doesn't sound like you got a very good look at the person that she was with. How can you be sure it wasn't Detective Jack Snyder?

Henry: Because my sources told me that Detective Snyder was right here at the Lakeview, at the exact same time that Miss Tenney was otherwise engaged. So, that leaves one prime candidate for her amour du jour, does it not?

Rosanna: I knew Craig was unreliable. I -- he just had so much to lose.

Henry: Oh, obviously he wasn't thinking with his calculator.

Rosanna: I want to see some photos. Show me some photos.

Henry: Yeah. Yeah. That -- that could be a problem.

Rosanna: What do you mean? What's the problem? Are they at the developers being --

Henry: No, no, no, I just -- I had a run-in with the building security person -- the guard confiscated my camera.

Rosanna: Wait a minute. This is outrageous. You come here, you tell me that Carly and Craig had sex in the office last night and you don't bring me proof? What kind of nitwit detective are you?

Paul: The gun is legal. I have a permit, if you want to see it.

Margo: Yes, I do. What are you planning on doing, Paul? You want to have a shootout with your father on Main street? Would you just let the Police handle Steinbeck?

Paul: Like you've been doing all along? He's been terrorizing this town for years. You guys haven't done a damn thing to slow him down.

Margo: All right, believe me, I understand your frustration. But weapons and blackmail, that's not the way --

Paul: I know what I'm doing.

Margo: No, you don't! Does this have something to do with Rose?

Paul: Leave Rose out of this.

Margo: All right, I -- I assume that you two have been in contact --

Paul: No, well, we haven't. All right? You happy?

Margo: What's wrong?

Paul: I haven't heard from Rose in a long time.

Margo: Is she all right?

Paul: I assume I would've heard if she weren't.

Margo: Well, Paul, what is going on? I don't -- I don't know. But I'm sure she'll contact me whenever she's ready. In the meantime, Steinbeck is coming back to Oakdale, and I have to be ready for him.

Margo: Fine. There is a warrant for his arrest. If you do see him, contact me directly and I'll have a unit over immediately.

Paul: That's exactly what he'd expect me to do, isn't it? Play by the rules. Well, I am done playing by the rules, Margo. This time, I'm doing things my way.

Margo: Meaning what?

Paul: Have an objective. And not give a damn who gets hurt.

Margo: You take the law into your own hands, I have no choice but to arrest you. Now, wouldn't that be ironic? You go to jail, and your father goes free.

Paul: That is not going to happen. And so what if it does. Do you know what it's like having him out there, Margo? There's not a day that goes by that I am not wracked with shame for being related to that psychopath.

Margo: You are not your father.

Paul: Yeah, and that would be the rational way to look at it. And I have tried. Every single day of my life I have tried, but no matter what I say to myself, I can't help but feel responsible for the crimes he commits.

Margo: All right, I have no idea what it would be like to have James Steinbeck as a father, but taking the law into your own hands, that is not...

Paul: And how do you know?

Margo: How good are you with this?

Paul: I know how to use it.

Margo: You are going to get yourself hurt.

Paul: If that's the cost of stopping Steinbeck, then so be it. Hey --

Margo: Paul, I'm going to assign a plainclothesman to you, all right?

Paul: Thank you but no thanks. I handle this myself. Can I go now?

Margo: Oh, Paul. You know I don't have any reason to hold you.

Paul: Good. Can I have my gun? I'd hate to be late for Travers' induction. You never know who might show up.

Bonnie: Mom --

Jessica: Bonnie. What are you doing here? I didn't expect you to come down.

Bonnie: Well, it was kind of last-minute. I thought you could use the support.

Jessica: Well, from you, always. But, as you can see, I have many friends left here.

Bonnie: I know you're being brave. And I wouldn't expect anything less, but watching him get sworn in, it's got to be like a knife in your heart.

Jessica: Actually, I'm fine with it.

Bonnie: Mother, I have personally watched first hand how you've given your all to this office. You sacrificed your personal life, missed meals, you lost sleep. And for what? To watch some outsider come in here and steal everything that belongs to you.

Jessica: Sweetheart, there's no point in harboring bad feelings. The election's over.

Bonnie: I know we should be gracious.

Jessica: Mm-hmm.

Bonnie: I know that, only -- look at him. Look at him. He's so full of himself, it's no wonder he doesn't explode.

Jessica: You seem more upset about this than I am.

Bonnie: I'm sorry. I'm sorry. I just -- I just -- guess I feel a little extra-protective over you today.

Jessica: Oh, well. Sweetheart, you win a few, you lose a few. That's life.

Bonnie: It's not just the election, mom. It's -- it's just that private practice is going to be such an adjustment for you.

Jessica: You know, you're the one who seems like you're about to explode. Are you sure it's just my change in career that's bothering you?

Bonnie: Well, of course it is. Of course. Unless, there's something else you want to tell me.

Judge: May I have your attention, please? Mr. Travers, will you step forward so that we can begin the induction?

Carly: Uh, Jack, I think we should go to Al's, you know, and get some coffee --

Jack: I don't want coffee, Carly.

Carly: And we can talk about it.

Jack: I want to fix this here. I want to fix it now. I couldn't hear you last night. Even if I could have, I wouldn't have believed it. Because when I came in here and I saw you with your arms around Craig, a part of my brain just clicked off.

Carly: I was just trying to keep him calm, Jack. He was all freaked out because Lucy ran off with Aaron.

Jack: There's always an excuse. Isn't there -- I mean, come on, Carly, when -- I'm sorry. Look, it was the last night before our wedding. And at that moment, I saw our whole lives laid out before us. A long road full of all the twists and turns that most couples take, only you and I, we had Craig popping up at every corner.

Carly: I would never let that happen, Jack. I thought you knew that.

Jack: Yes, well, you kept on telling me that. But last night, my eyes told me otherwise.

Carly: So, what's changed?

Jack: When you didn't come home last night, I thought of everything we've been through together. The good times we had, the mistakes we both made, and one thought kept popping back up. The way I felt when I thought I'd never see you again. It was more than fear. Fear, I understand. It was like this -- this emptiness I knew I could never fill if you were gone. I felt that way again last night.

Carly: I'm sorry. I never meant to hurt you, Jack. And I'm sorry if this wedding publicity got out of control. I just wanted to have something so special that people would remember -- forever.

Jack: Yes, I know. I know. I know. I know that, honey. I know. And I want you to have that, I do. I've just been so obsessed with this whole Craig thing, I forgot about how much I love you.

Carly: I love you, too. And I want to be with you forever, Jack.

Jack: Okay. Is there any way we can get past this? Is there any way you can somehow forgive me?

Carly: You haven't done anything wrong, Jack.

Jack: Come on, Carly, I accused you of stuff you would never do. I stopped trusting you. And I am so incredibly sorry for that.

Carly: Please, please, no apologies, all right?

Jack: Well, you've got a bunch of them coming, honey. I didn't even --

Carly: Come on, Jack, just stop it. This -- this is confusing enough.

Jack: I know. Well, it's got to be confusing for you. And you're probably angry and hurt, too. So, listen, I'm not gonna hold you back. If there's anything you want to tell me, now would be the time.

Events manager: No sense in letting these arrangements wilt. I'll call the florist and see if I can exchange them for a discount or something.

Molly: There's gonna be plenty of time for that, okay? Carly and Jack belong together. And I really think they're going to realize that before the day is over.

Events manager: Okay, okay, I won't do anything until I hear from you. I'll probably end up eating all that salmon myself.

Rosanna: Problem with the wedding, Molly? That would be so upsetting.

Molly: It's very sweet of you to be concerned, Rosanna, but everything's fine.

Rosanna: Oh, good. How are things with you and Mike? I really hope everything worked out.

Molly: You do? Define "worked out."

Rosanna: Well, you told him you made that donation to the hospital, so that he would stay in Oakdale. And he said he understood, and everybody moved on.

Molly: Well, I'm really sorry to disappoint you, Rosanna, but, no, that's not the way things worked out. I told him what I did, and he said he never wanted to see me again.

Rosanna: Really? He broke up with you?

Molly: Don't act so surprised. You know Mike. You knew how he'd respond.

Rosanna: Well, you never can predict how someone's going to behave, can you?

Molly: Cut the song and dance, Rosanna. You went out of your way to find out that I was the anonymous donor. And you had every intention of using that to keep Mike away from me.

Rosanna: I know it's very convenient to blame me, but I am not the one who manipulated Mike.

Molly: Fine. You're right. I made a mistake. I paid for it. Now, if you're done gloating, this room is reserved for a private party.

Rosanna: You know, I can see what you and Carly have in common and why you're so close. You both lack any real appreciation for the truth. You both lie when it suits you, without any regard for the consequences. That's what broke up you and Mike. And if I know my sister, it'll destroy her and Jack as well.

Carly: I'm not holding anything back, Jack.

Jack: Oh, come on, Carly. That was the reason you spent all night here last night, feeling alone and unloved.

Carly: All right, I'll be honest with you. Honestly, I don't think there's anything I need to forgive you for, Jack.

Jack: Honey, I called off our wedding. I'm not sure I can forgive myself for that.

Carly: You overreacted. So, who hasn't overreacted? I have. I've done worse.

Jack: No, you swore to me that I was the only man in your life, the only man you ever wanted. I should never have doubted you, Carly. I'm not gonna say "I'm sorry" again. I just want you to know that I am going to spend the rest of my life making you happy, assuming that you still want to be my wife.

Carly: Jack, I don't deserve you.

Jack: You don't deserve me? Just -- just tell me you're still going to marry me tonight.

Carly: Yes. Yes, yes. Of course, I'm going to marry you, Jack. You're --- you are the man of my dreams. My life is nothing without you. Now -- you should go.

Jack: Why?

Carly: Because the way I must look. I don't want you to change your mind again.

Jack: Oh, no, don't. Don't even joke. Listen, there -- are a couple of things I gotta tell you. One of them's kind of sensitive, so I think you should hear it from me.

Carly: What? Sounds serious. What is it?

Jack: Mike and Molly broke up.

Carly: What happened?

Jack: I saw Molly at the Lakeview. She told me about this donation she made to the hospital, the one she was keeping from Mike. I assume you know that.

Carly: Yeah. Molly was so serious about keeping it a secret --

Jack: I know, I know, don't worry about it. It's all right. Listen, you should really give Molly a call. Without her, she -- she was a big part of the reason why I'm here right now.

Carly: What do you mean?

Jack: She got my message that I called the wedding off. She asked me what happened. I tried to make her leave, but she hung in there and she made me -- she made me think. And she reminded me, among other things, that life's too short. And how rare true love is. Now, maybe I would've come to those conclusions on my own, but -- she's a good friend, Carly. To both of us.

Carly: She is. Maybe there's some way I can help her and Mike get back together.

Jack: Yeah, well, it couldn't hurt. Listen, if you're ready to go, I don't mind waiting.

Carly: No, I have a few things to do, and it's not going to take me long, but I work better if I'm alone.

Jack: I'll sit in the corner. I won't say a word.

Carly: Just go, okay?

Jack: Okay.

Carly: I will be fine.

Jack: All right, we are going to have a great life.

Carly: I know.

Mike: Oh. I wish I could've gone somewhere -- anywhere. That was a very private conversation that you guys should've had alone.

Carly: Well, I have nobody but myself to blame.

Mike: Don't start blaming yourself, Carly.

Carly: Why not? I am a horrible, just disgusting, despicable human being, lying to the man I love while the man I slept with just a few hours ago is hiding around the corner? Do you have any idea how that makes me feel?

Mike: Okay, but there's no reason Jack ever needs to find out about this, okay? It could be as it never happened.

Carly: Did you hear what he said? It was Molly who encouraged him to come after me. And isn't that just like her? To put her problems aside, and she thought I needed help. Look what I give to her in return.

Mike: Don't do this, Carly, all right? It -- it happened, it's over, all right?

Carly: Nobody can ever find out about this, Mike, all right? You have to promise me.

Mike: It'll be our secret. Trust me, it'll be our secret. All right?

Marshall: I do solemnly swear that I will support the Constitution of the United States and of the State of Illinois.

Judge: And that I will faithfully perform the duties of the office of District Attorney, to the best of my ability.

Marshall: And that I will faithfully perform the duties of the office of District Attorney, to the best of my ability.

Judge: Congratulations, Mr. District Attorney. Best of luck.

Jessica: If there's anything I can do to make your transition easier, just don't hesitate to call.

Marshall: I have to take you up on that, Jessica. Filling your shoes won't be easy.

Jessica: Oh, I'm sure you're the man for the job. Excuse me.

Bonnie: Congratulations.

Paul: Well, well, well, Marshall Travers. Congratulations. Your errand girl Brandy told me to be ready tonight.

Marshall: That's correct.

Paul: So, that means my father will show up?

Marshall: Most assuredly, Mr. Ryan.

Paul: Be sure he does. Because if anything goes wrong, that tape of you and Jessica will be on the evening news.

Marshall: I told you everything is set up. There's no need to harass me.

Paul: Fine, that's all I needed to hear. And you know that part where I congratulated you, I didn't mean it.

Bonnie: I'll be right back. Paul, hey. I saw you talking to Marshall. It looked pretty intense.

Paul: Oh, yeah, I had a parking ticket I needed to get fixed. So I figured I'd start at the top. I'll see you later, all right?

Bonnie: Are you sure it wasn't about that tape?

Paul: Yes, I am sure. Any other questions?

Bonnie: Why are you lying? What is on that tape? And how could it hurt my mother?

Paul: I knew I shouldn't have told anything at all. The best thing you can do is to pretend the tape never existed.

Bonnie: And allow it to ambush my mother? Oh, come on, Paul, you gotta know me better than that.

Paul: Look, Bonnie, just stay out of this. Listen to me. If I get everything I want, that tape will not matter to anyone after tonight, all right?

Bonnie: Why? Why? What is going to happen?

Paul: That's all I can tell you, I'm sorry. All right?

Bonnie: Paul!

Jessica: It's been a pleasure, your honor.

Judge: I'll miss you.

Jessica: Thank you.

Judge: I'll see you later.

Jessica: You said Paul Ryan would be handled. I want to know exactly what that means.

Marshall: I can't get specific. But things will be happening soon.

Jessica: What things? Are people going to be hurt?

Marshall: Not you. Never you, Jessica. Not as long as I'm alive.

Jack: Hey. You hear any good bachelor party jokes lately?

Margo: I didn't laugh at any of them, Jack. What's going on?

Jack: Well, as of last night, my wedding to Carly was off. That's why I tripped out on the guys when they surprised me. But as of this morning, I'm happy to say that it's back on.

Margo: Good for you, Jack.

Jack: Nothing for Carly and me is ever going to be easy. Stuff's always going to get in our way, kind of like your brother. We're going to do it right this time, Margo.

Margo: Oh. I'm happy for you. And let me probably be the last to say, it's about time.

Jack: No kidding. So, anything new around here?

Margo: Yeah, Paul Ryan was in. And he hasn't broken any laws yet, but it's just a matter of time. His obsession with linking James Steinbeck to Marshall Travers is getting more dangerous every day.

Jack: Yeah, yeah, I know. I'll have a talk with him first chance I get, although I don't know when that's gonna be.

Margo: Well, you're gonna be kind of busy today though, huh?

Jack: Yeah, which is why I need a favor from you.

Margo: Anything, just name it.

Jack: I got this with my wedding gifts at the Lakeview. Now, it didn't go with a card. No one saw it delivered.

Margo: Well, maybe -- maybe it was delivered to a different event.

Jack: Yeah, I get the feeling that it's not it. Can you have this traced?

Trick or treater #1: Trick or treat. Give us something good to eat.

Margo: Sure, yeah. You want to tell me what you're thinking, though?

Cop #1: How about half a sandwich left over from yesterday?

Trick or treater #2: No, not a sandwich!

Trick or treater #3: We want candy!

Cop #1: Okay, here you go. Who's first?

Trick or treater #3: Me!

Trick or treater #2: Me!

Mike: I meant what I said before. I -- I really wish I could've given you guys some privacy in that conversation. But in a sense, I'm kind of glad I heard what he had to say. That guy's got a lot of guts.

Carly: And in what way?

Mike: It's not real easy for a guy to admit when he's wrong.

Carly: Oh. Well, you know, Jack isn't the only guy who can take back something he said.

Mike: Subtle, Carly. Very subtle.

Carly: Why don't you go to Molly and apologize to her, admit that you were wrong.

Mike: I'm not sure I was, not completely.

Carly: Well, then open your heart, see where that takes you.

Mike: I don't know if I can explain to you how it felt when I found out that Molly was the one who manipulated me into staying in Oakdale.

Carly: As a very wise man once told me, it happened. It's over.

Mike: You know, I really hate it when people throw my own words back in my face.

Carly: I just want you to be happy. And I've seen you with Molly, and I think that you have a chance at that with her.

Mike: I'll think about it, Carly. That's the best I can do.

Carly: Good. I'll be rooting for you. I'm sorry -- when you showed up here last night, I certainly had no intention --

Mike: Whoa, whoa, wait a minute. Wait a minute. First off, I'm a big boy, okay? I can take responsibility for everything that I did last night. And secondly, I'm not sorry, all right? So there's no reason for you to apologize.

Carly: Are you serious? No regrets?

Mike: If what happened last night ends up ruining our friendship, yeah -- yeah, then I'm going to feel bad. Same thing if it gets out. But I'm not going to tell you that I was sorry for making love to you.

Carly: That sounds like a compliment. But somehow it doesn't seem right to say "thank you."

Mike: I think it's best if we just stay out of each other's way for awhile, all right?

Carly: Mm-hmm.

Mike: Good luck, you know, tonight. I'll make sure no one sees me on the way out, all right?

[Carly sighs]

[phone ringing]

Carly: Monte Carlo. It's Carly.

Molly: Hey, Carly, it's me, Molly. Is everything okay?

Are you going to be all right?

Carly: Um, just give me a second to think about that, okay? Yeah, yeah, I'm good.

Molly: Just give it to me straight. Is the wedding still off?

Carly: Oh, no, no. It's on, cuz. Jack and I are getting married tonight.

Molly: Ah, I knew it, I knew it! You stay right there,

don't you move a muscle. I'm in my car. I'll be right there.

Carly: No, Molly, I'm just --

[Molly hangs up] oh, boy. This is not going to be easy.

Henry: Well, you wanted proof, Miss Cabot -- here it is.

Margo: But what makes you think that this baby shirt is from Julia?

Jack: You remember when she -- paid me a little visit last time she was in town? There's a possibility she could be pregnant.

Margo: But you haven't heard from her. Why would you think that?

Jack: Right after she disappeared, she sent me a little gift, a stick from a home pregnancy test. Needless to say, it was positive.

Margo: Oh, that does sound like Julia, but, Jack, that stick could've been from anybody.

Jack: Yeah, right, that's why I didn't say anything. Look, this baby shirt, that could be a mix-up. But just in case it did come from Julia, I think it's smart I know about it.

Margo: All right, all right, all right. I'll get on it right away. Hopefully, I'll find out something before tonight.

Jack: Thank you. I appreciate it. But, call me on my cell phone, not at home.

Margo: Oh, you haven't told Carly, huh?

Jack: We've had enough problems for one day, Margo. We don't need this tripping us up.

Margo: Listen, don't let this present thing keep you from having a happy day. This is your day, you should make the most of it.

Jack: Thanks. I appreciate it. I'll be in touch.

Molly: I never stopped believing in you guys for a second! Even when Jack said it was over, I knew that tonight would find its way to happen. I knew you guys would get married.

Carly: You did?

Molly: Yup.

Carly: How?

Molly: Faith, hope and because I know what an incredible person you are. Congratulations again.

Carly: Thank you. Thanks. Jack said you were a real help.

Molly: I just pointed out to him that he would be making the biggest mistake of his life if he let you go. Oh, do you know how relieved I am?

Carly: I am, too. For so many reasons.

Molly: Cuz, I was afraid I wouldn't be able to give you this.

Carly: What is that? You brought a present for me. Why?

Molly: Because you appointed me your maid of honor. Because I love you. Go ahead, open it.

Carly: Oh, Molly. Oh, Molly. They're magnificent.

Molly: When I saw them in the store window, I just knew I had to get them for you, honey.

Carly: Thank you.

Molly: Okay, that's the "something new." This is the old, borrowed and blue.

Carly: It's all three? I can't wait to see what it is.

Molly: It's from Jake's and my wedding. Honey, I just wish you and Jack as much happiness as we had.

Carly: Oh, Molly. Oh, Molly. Thank you. Jack told me what happened with Mike. And I don't even know what to say. It's terrible. It's horrible.

Molly: No. No, no, no, no. No, we are not going there today. Okay? Not on your special day. I'm going to be fine, all right? That's all you need to know.

Carly: Hey. You don't need to protect me. You hear me? If there's anything that I can do, anything you need --

Molly: Only thing that you can do for me today, is be as happy and have as much fun as you possibly can handle, okay?

Carly: Okay. But, you know, if you don't want to fulfill your maid of honor duties, I -- I understand.

Molly: You're joking, right?

Carly: No.

Molly: Carly, do you honestly believe that anything short of a natural disaster would keep me from standing up for you at your wedding? You are like my sister. No, you know what? It's beyond that. You and I, we're, like, heart mates. Beating in rhythm. Your happiness is my happiness. And I will be there for you today, tomorrow, for as long as you need me, for the rest of your life.

Henry: I found these in the garbage outside of Carly's office. It's an obvious attempt to conceal evidence.

Rosanna: Well, this is progress, Mr. Coleman, but I'm still not paying you.

Henry: Why not?

Rosanna: A bottle of champagne and a couple of plastic glasses does not prove that Carly and Craig slept together. And I wanted pictures.

Henry: Well, pictures after the fact are an impossibility, okay, Rosanna? However, if it is more proof that you require, then I will do everything in my power to get you that proof.

Rosanna: Thank you very much. I suggest you hurry.

Henry: I'm on my way.

Rosanna: Well, it looks like I've got you, Craig. And the soon-to-be blushing bride, as well.

Marshall: I can't be specific about what to expect. But rest assured, nothing will harm you, or the people you love.

Jessica: Thank you, but I can protect myself. Now, what things are about to happen?

Marshall: Look, look, I've said too much already. Except that, in case you haven't realized it, you are very important to me. Jessica, it's been my custom to make myself available to women and then, regardless of their interest, move on. I'm incapable of doing that with you. I will not stop pursuing you. I care for you that deeply.

Bonnie: Hey, mom, if you're --

Jessica: Oh, Bonnie. Bonnie, wait, wait!

Events manager: Excuse me, sir. The Mandelbaum Halloween party is in on the penthouse floor. This room is reserved for a wedding tonight.

James: A wedding? How delightful. How bloody delightful.
